I am the Shewolffe. Not the original SheWolffe – that was my mother, but I am the firstborn SheWolffe.
That perhaps makes no sense to you, so let me explain. My surname is Wolffe, which of course comes from my father. But the name goes back no further – he made it up himself in post War Britain in the 1940s. So, when he married my mother, she became the first SheWolffe. And I am their daughter.
But what else to tell you about myself?
I’m a passionate fundraiser, working mostly in the arts, culture and heritage sector. So if you need help to make your organisation more financially viable, do get in touch.
This website has been my blog for a few years, focusing on foodie things (another passion of mine) .. shortly it will focus only on what I can offer clients as a freelance fundraiser. In the meantime, please bear with me.
I live in Lanarkshire in the Clyde Valley, in a beautiful house surrounded by fields. One of life’s great pleasures is looking out each morning and seeing the changing landscape – sometimes infinitessimally small changes, in the length of the grass, or the colour of the leaves on the trees in the wood at the bottom of our garden. But some days the changes are bigger – sheep (and their lambs) may have been moved into the field, or the farmer has spread muck on the field (eeeeww) or has baled hay, into great enormous bobbins scattered all over the field.
I live here with the Captain. And my cat, dog and chickens.
I love cooking and am passionate about good, local food. There are over 150 cookbooks in my collection (exactly how many over I’m not too sure) and I love to try new recipes. It’s rare that I follow them to the letter though. I also love experimenting and making up my own new recipes – however I don’t always weigh things as I go, or write precise instructions as I go, so my recipes are not necessarily for the first time or anxious cook.
To relax I love reading and also making things. Most of my making is on two needles (knitting) or with a hook (crochet) but occasionally with the sewing machine. I have a ridiculously large stash of yarn and fabrics which will become some interesting project one day. Or will be given away.
I also grow things. Or I try to. I’ve been most successful with greenhouse growing instead of veg bed growing (something to do with chickens scratching up every seed in the veg bed!) but each year we make a wee bit of progress, so perhaps this year we’ll have more than just new potatoes.
Oh, and I love a list.
There will be more lists. And more photographs.
